i will just save those questions for her. >> thank you. >> mr. mauer, will your department have sufficient budget to maintain the new trees? >> so the unique thing about this particular park is half the trees -- it's a city block, so two streets are actually maintained by rec and park and our staff will maintain the trees after we put them in. two of the other streets i believe steiner and ellis are part of the dpw infrastructure and i say that in quotes a little bit because it's recreation and park garden staff maintains curb to curb in those instances. the true responsibility relies in two departments, but the reality is that parks and recreation garden staff will maintain the trees overtime. this is part of the clean neighborhood, $3.3 million to address this and other park improvements. >> thank you. >> good evening commissioners carla short, department of public works urban forestry. i don't really have anything to add to what dan said, but we did indicate this trees a tree appropriate for removal based on the recent limb failure and the presence of decay already. we'r

, a utah judge has now ordered the couple return the toddler to her biological father within 60 days. the judge found that mr. achan's opportunity to develop a relationship with his daughter was deliberately thwarted. the court ruled that because the fryes knew mr. achan had been married to talia's mother and was her legal father, he was entitled to immediate custody of his daughter. not what talia's birth mother was hoping to hear. >> my heart was comfortable with lia being with the fryes. i would rather see her with me struggling first before she goes with him. >> reporter: the clock is ticking for the fryes to hand talia over. the deadline is january 16th. but the fryes aren't giving up. they have requested a stay of the judge's order and are planning to appeal. calls to the fryes were not returned but their lawyer sent me an e-mail explaining the fryes do not believe that anything can be gained by trying their case in the court of public appeal. they believe the district court made some fundamental errors in its decision and they will raise those with the appropriate appellate co
very much, mr. president. i do want to thank supervisor kim and her staff, who have been working on this for quite some time. i also want to thank the members of the community who have also been advocating for the city, providing additional funding to the school district. you know, i've said this many times before, you know, that i do believe that we, as city government, have an obligation to support our public schools because we do have a situation where our federal government and our state government are failing our kids. they are not providing the level of funding that is needed for us to have the kind of world-class public school system that our children deserve. and in san francisco, a city of great affluence to the extent that the federal and state governments are not stepping up to the plate, we have historically, as city government, done that, and that's why we have created things like the rainy day fund and prop h. this has been very clear from the beginning. but one thing that i did raise last time, and i want to make sure that on the record i get some assurances on, is

[inaudible] in the drafting of the affordable care act. why didn't humana and the others try to copy the systems of canada and other parts of europe like having a single-payer take care of all medical expenses?

morning. yeah, i take issue with the way the 7.7 jobless rate is determined, and i agree with mr. newman that it probably is in the upper teens. to an extent. i have a daughter who just got her children all, they're in their teens now and she's been looking for a job over the year. i don't know how she could possibly be factored into the jobless rate when they don't even know she exists or that she's looking for a job. i'm sure there are a lot of people like her. i really think the jobless rate is somewhere up in the 20%. thank you for your time. host: mr. newman? guest: for some people, for some groups, the unemployment rate is in the 20%, particularly for young people. i think it's above 20% for young people. i think maybe we pay a little too much attention to the unemployment rate. everybody is right, that you know 7.7% or 7.9%, that absolutely does not tell us everything we need to know about the economy. people think that this is sort of manipulating by the government, in order to conceal numbers that would actually be far worse. that's not true because the government publishes i th
